Connecticut Audubon’s Hartford Advocacy List for 2021
March 16, 2021 — When Connecticut Audubon published “10 Things You Can Do to Help Birds,” at the top of the list was: Advocate.
Helping to change laws, in Hartford and Washington, by speaking out and writing is an incredibly effective way of protecting the environment.
As usual, Connecticut Audubon Public Policy/Advocacy Committee has chosen a handful of important bills in Hartford to speak out on in 2021. Here’s a list, with links to our written testimony.
February 11, 2021 — Testimony in support of an Act Concerning Arts, Culture and Tourism Funding.
